Lenovo forms new business group to focus on tablets and smartphones
Well known for their robust ThinkPad series of laptops, Lenovo is responding to the rapidly growing mobile market by forming a new business unit solely for developing tablets, smartphones, and even television. “The Mobile Internet and Digital Home Business Group will help us leverage our leadership in the PC arena to create a rich portfolio of internet-centric devices,” said chief CEO of Lenovo in a statement Monday regarding the newly created business unit.
A few upcoming tablets from Lenovo were spotted at this year’s CES, including the IdeaPad Slate and the IdeaPad U1 Hybrid. The Slate will be a more traditional tablet with a 10.1-inch display, while the U1 Hybrid will be a laptop with a removable screen that functions as a tablet when disconnected from the laptop frame. Expect more tablet and mobile device announcements in the future from Lenovo as the company focuses more on the mobile market sector.
